Save time, empower your teams and effectively upgrade your processes with access to this practical Laboratory Automation Toolkit and guide. Address common challenges with best-practice templates, step-by-step work plans and maturity diagnostics for any Laboratory Automation related project.

Download the Toolkit and in Three Steps you will be guided from idea to implementation results.

The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Laboratory Automation specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Laboratory Automation Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 992 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Laboratory Automation improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 992 standard requirements:

  1. Are current automation solutions lagging behind in technological advancement, or are there advantages and economies of scale in conventional technology that benefits current design?

  2. Is there a documented record of unscheduled downtime, system degradation (response time), or other computer problems that includes reasons for failure and corrective action taken?

  3. When revised results are reported, are the revised and original data clearly identified as corresponding, and are the original data readily accessible to the user for comparison?

  4. When the procedure for reviewing results involves automatic selection and reporting, does your organization review criteria established, approved and documented?

  5. Is there a documented schedule and procedure for regular maintenance of hardware and software either by maintenance contracts or documented in-house procedures?

  6. Have policies and procedures been developed regarding the reporting of all occupational injuries or illnesses that require medical treatment (except first aid)?

  7. Are there any other comments you would like to provide related to your organizations participation in the LIMS project, or any other comments in general?

  8. Are computer error messages that alert computer users of imminent problems monitored and is the error message response system tested periodically?

  9. Is there a system whereby the identity of the analyst performing or completing the test and the date of the test can always be established?

  10. Has your organization conducted an interim self-inspection and documented efforts to correct deficiencies identified during that process?


Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Laboratory Automation book in PDF containing 992 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy

The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage Laboratory Automation projects with the 62 implementation resources:

  • 62 step-by-step Laboratory Automation Project Management Form Templates covering over 1500 Laboratory Automation project requirements and success criteria:

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Milestone List: What specific improvements did you make to the Laboratory Automation project proposal since the previous time?

  2. Duration Estimating Worksheet: How can the Laboratory Automation project be displayed graphically to better visualize the activities?

  3. Change Management Plan: Will all field readiness criteria have been practically met prior to training roll-out?

  4. Procurement Audit: Are the pages of the minutes book press pre-numbered?

  5. Procurement Management Plan: Does the detailed work plan match the complexity of tasks with the capabilities of personnel?

  6. Executing Process Group: How well did the chosen processes fit the needs of the Laboratory Automation project?

  7. Team Member Performance Assessment: To what degree do team members feel that the purpose of the team is important, if not exciting?

  8. Assumption and Constraint Log: Does the traceability documentation describe the tool and/or mechanism to be used to capture traceability throughout the life cycle?

  9. Quality Audit: How does your organization know that its system for inducting new staff to maximize workplace contributions are appropriately effective and constructive?

  10. Cost Management Plan: Resources Ð how will human resources be scheduled during each phase of the Laboratory Automation project?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Laboratory Automation project with this in-depth Laboratory Automation Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Laboratory Automation projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Laboratory Automation and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Laboratory Automation investments work better.

This Laboratory Automation All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
